Calhoun Community College Receives $5,000 from TVA


Calhoun Community College recently received $5,000 from the Tennessee Valley Authority’s (TVA) Corporate Contributions fund for the college’s Criminal Justice program. 

According to Dr. Debi Hendershot, Calhoun’s dean for planning, research and grants, the college will use the funds to purchase scientific laboratory equipment and supplies to develop a library of hands on experiments in Forensics Technology.  This equipment includes unique science lab kits that contain traditional lab experiments uniquely designed to mirror those performed on higher education campuses around the world.  The specialty labs incorporate real crime scene scenarios and follow the standard sequence of forensics coursework.

“TVA continues to be an extremely valuable and supportive corporate partner for Calhoun,” commented Hendershot.  “This latest contribution to the college will enable us to provide hands-on experience for students interested in pursuing careers in the very challenging and popular field of forensics,” she added.
